The Santander City Council has granted a license to the Santander Free Zone for the conditioning of a warehouse for the storage of metal products in the Parayas industrial estate, a project that, as announced by the DEE, Fernando Cámara, has a budget of 474,476 euros.
The head of the Santander Free Trade Zone has highlighted the work being carried out these days by the Santander City Council to continue with the processing of files that allows accelerating economic activity and the generation of employment that the construction sector entails in Santander and has grateful for the work and effort of the technicians.
“In this case, it is an initiative of the Santander Free Trade Zone, in whose consortium the City Council is represented, with whom a close collaboration is maintained, thus speeding up municipal procedures as much as possible and carrying out this important investment.”
As detailed, the project defines the conditioning works for this already existing industrial warehouse, in which it is intended to store wire rod. The warehouse was built in 1968 on the land of the Port of Santander and over the years has housed different uses, being linked to port activities.
It is a diaphanous warehouse, with a single floor, in which today it is necessary to carry out this conservation and adaptation project, since it is not equipped with the necessary facilities, enclosures and finishes and shows the deterioration of the use and passage of time.
Surrounded by facilities of the same type, it is located on an ‘L’-shaped plot, approximately 100×32 meters, where there were several buildings that have been partly demolished.
This industrial warehouse has a floor area of 2,953 m2, with a minimum height of 7.30 meters and 10.40 meters at the ridge. The structure is made up of porticoes with metal supports and beams, on which joists are supported that support a fiber cement cover and translucent panels.
The works planned in the project, explained Fernando Cámara, will include the replacement of the fiber cement roofing material and translucent panels with one of pre-lacquered aluminum sheet with insulated interior and the troughs will also be replaced in the damaged areas.
Besides that, on the facade points in which the factory has small breaks, cracks or bulges with respect to the vertical plane will be repaired, the access door will be changed, and a pedestrian door will be enabled.
Inside, a service area will be created that will include offices, changing rooms and toilets and the necessary electricity, supply, sanitation, ventilation and fire protection facilities will be provided.
Fernando Cámara has stressed the importance of these private investments for the city’s economy and has assured that it is a project that will also contribute to the modernization of the facilities that serve the port.
